Civil Disobedience Today

Some people may think that civil disobedience is a thing of the past, a kind of action limited to historical figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, or Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is not true; Acts of civil disobedience are happening presently all around the world. This page aims to link you to information about them.
